I am new to working on these things but can figure quite a bit out from pictures and instructions. Can anyone post a picture of the actual screw that needs to be replaced or alterred for me please?
95% of what is in the 250F FAQ
is directly applicable to the 450F's as well.
for example, the location and process for the throttle stop mod is here:
note that the final "cut" length of the 450F throttle stop may differ from the 250F type. you have two choices -- wait for someone to chime in here with what the overall length should be, or manually figure it out. for the latter, you'll need to push the intake boot off the carb -- this will let you see the slid move up and down in the carb throat. with the stock throttle stop in, you'll note that the slide moves just past halfway up. back the throttle stop screw out until the slide clears the entire diameter of the throat, but no more. mark or measure how much you backed out the screw -- that's the length you need to cut off of the end.
there is a good view of how to move the carb boot and look at the slide in the last picture here:
it's not as complicated as it sounds, and will only take you 10 minutes to do. see the pics in the 250F FAQ.
